The faculty, staff, governing board, and church leaders thank you for considering our school for your child.
At Trinity MOPS Preschool, we believe that children learn best through play. All activities are designed to provide learning experiences, with the individual child in mind, that are interesting, fun, and hands-on. Our teachers provide an environment that:
- supports the growth of the whole child in developmentally appropriate ways
- helps children learn respect for themselves, each other, and the whole world around them
- encourages children to acquire self-esteem, concern for others, a sense of community, and a spirit of sharing
- fosters creativity, exploration, self-discipline, and a love of learning
